Thank you guys!  Something that surprises me is the fact that no one has said anything about the taillights.  It was an idea I got from TV's Bitchin' Rides.

I just received my copy of the Scale Auto Newsletter in my email and this WIP was in the Readers Forum Checklist.  I don't know how these topics are picked, but I must be doing something right!  Thank you Scale Auto!

Hi Mike,

It just maybe that your posts and WIPs are well done, informative, interesting and result in nice models. 

Also, in regards to nobody mentioning the tail lights on the coupe it's probably that most who view it are not "street rod" savvy enough to know that particular cars lights didn't come that way. It does look good though.

See you on the 18th.

Whoa, cool & groovy! Well done Mike! I had the gaping gap problem on one of the woodies I built and had to take mine apart and fill in the same way!

Thank you Barry and Patrick!  I knew I had to block the gap somehow.  It just didn't seem right being able to look through the car via the fender gaps.

Been out of pocket for a bit.  Just got caught up.  Nice work with the detailing and the work around with the clearance issue.  Great job Mike.  Another home run!! YesYes

Just keep picking away at it...

This looks great! So good to see how far your skills have come. Its a testimony to practice. I think no one is asking about the tail lights since that is one of those parts everyone seems to have their preference and personalizes their own. With that said, I am curious to what you used as I can't find a reference to them. I know I have had good results with the Monogram 37 Ford pieces. Mike
